Hello. I want to start by saying I am *only looking for information about *rehoming, although I have NOT made a decision on what I am going to do at this point. I have a real account with this site and I am also a part of the Facebook group. So many of you have already helped me learn how to work with my cats diabetes so I want to thank you for that. I have found cheaper supplies, learned a lot about testing and shooting and all the other aspects that go into caring for a sugar baby. I am posting this under an anonymous account to avoid any backlash. *****That being said if you are going to post a reply please read my post all the way through, and try to be understanding and kind. when I adopted him, I did it with every intention of providing a FOREVER home. I never thought I would be in this position. Even the thought of rehoming my little one is heartbreaking to me, but I need to make sure he is getting the best care he possibly can and If I’m honest with myself, I’m not sure That I can provide that. For starters it is starting to take a toll on my own health. I have anxiety issues as it is and at times find it difficult to take care of my own needs let alone to be able to meet someone else’s needs. I was given a cat 10 years ago because of the low maintenance care and because having an animal companion lowered my anxiety. This cat and I are truly bonded and this is an incredibly challenging decision. Apart from my own health, I am struggling to keep up financially with this disease. I am young and already living paycheck to paycheck and even with all of the money saving tips I have picked up from you wonderful people I am still struggling to make ends meet (as well as trying to save money for my future). I have read about some financial aid opportunities with different groups so this isn’t the biggest factor, but it does play a role in my decision. Another factor, is that during the summer I do a lot of traveling. I’ve come to terms with the fact that I will not be doing any short weekend trips this year, but I already have two major trips planned for the upcoming season that I have invested quite a bit of money into, and can not find affordable long term care for him while I am away (the trips are rather long). I have thought about cancelling, but as I said I have already put money (that I spent a long time saving up) into them, and it is to see family across the country who I haven’t seen in ages. LONG STORY SHORT: I am looking for SAFE, RELIABLE, QUALITY options for rehoming (again just to consider all of my options) . I REFUSE to surrender him anywhere there is even a chance of being put down (he is absolutely NOT at the point to consider euthanasia). I am hoping to find a facility I can volunteer in, OR a foster home which will keep in contact with me. (I am in Minnesota btw). I have asked some friends and family as keeping him as close as possible is the goal, but I have had no luck so far. I truly wish I didn’t have to create this post but I feel it is selfish of me to keep my cat if I cannot properly care for him. Thank you in advance for any advice.
